The Goddess Is Rising And She Is Alive Within You

Since I was a little girl, I could feel deep within my soul that I had a mission. A mission that was of such importance, I knew we had come here in droves to accomplish it.

But, what exactly was this mission?

When I would ask myself what I was supposed to do here, I couldn’t find the answer. It felt as if it was shrouded in mystery and truly hidden from me. I was always into the supernatural, the mystical, and the metaphysical for as long as I can remember.

I wanted to be a healer and to be of service to others, but our society doesn’t teach us how to tap into this intuitive side of ourselves. This was when I learned that to be accepted by my peers and family, I must learn to conform in every way.

As I grew into a woman, I hit a brick wall. I felt as if I had no purpose at all. All of the materialistic possessions they tell us we should desire in our lives simply didn’t make me happy anymore. It didn’t feel good conforming to life’s standards, and it certainly didn’t feel great lying to myself either.

Looking back, it took a massive, life-shattering event to shift my perspective. When I moved abroad during college, I had to learn what it meant to live in a foreign place for the first time. I was alone, scared, and utterly exhilarated by the idea of a fresh start.

It was through heartbreak and rejection that I finally saw all the places I was rejecting myself because I was afraid to speak my truth. I was afraid to stand in my power and authenticity.

This was when I learned that running away from my problems wouldn’t shed light on my shadows.

This breakthrough allowed me to realize my true worth and purpose here. From this initiation, I was pushed into my divine feminine energy.

After this “awakening,” I learned as much as I could about spirituality, self-care, and meditation. I tried to make sense of my life experiences. However, the pursuit of knowledge is one thing, and searching for your soul is another altogether.

Through trial and error, twists and turns, I finally surmised that I had to let go of all I believed to be true about our reality to know myself on a deeper level. I had to learn to travel into this unfamiliar space of receptivity. This is not normal for me because I was taught to go after what I want with action and calculated planning. However, from this unknown, inner space, I felt interconnected to all the feminine energies that came before me and all that would come after.

As I looked back on my life, I saw hints scattered around me everywhere. Like a puzzle, I put the pieces back together and saw the bigger picture. There was one common theme that stood out to me, but I never gave it much thought.

I had observed how women were pushed into over-sacrificing, over-giving, and living a life path they wouldn’t have chosen.

This outraged and saddened me. I saw myself on the precipice of falling into this very same trap. I then realized how the feminine and masculine aspects have become imbalanced within me and the world around me.

Throughout our lives, we have been forced to conform to a world that exalts one energy (the masculine) and rejects the other.

I would ask myself, why don’t we raise our voices? Why can’t we blaze our own path?

If you are reading this, maybe you too are here for the same reason I am. And perhaps you, too, have asked yourself these very same questions.

I believe the disempowerment of the divine feminine happened to halt the power and evolution of all souls, which starts with the feminine force that creates all life. I also believe we are here to bring back the sacred goddess archetype. To raise her up to her rightful place in the hearts, minds, and values of humanity once again.

Her hermetic teachings have been silenced for centuries. Her words have been twisted, and her healing methods have been burned at the stake. But not this time. We will not allow it. We are stronger together than we could have ever been apart.

But why now? What has changed?

Gaia is in distress. Gaia sent out a call across the universe, and you came.

You came because you knew that as a multi-dimensional being, you could incarnate the energy of the Goddess here on Earth. You knew that by being authentic, uncensored, and unafraid to speak your truth, you could anchor the balanced feminine and masculine energies here in this dimension. In turn, this becomes a template for others to do the same.

However, the only way we can truly transmute these energies is by diving deep into our shadows. By doing this, we learn deep acceptance and receptivity for where we are now, without judgment or shame.

Openness and receptivity are not the natural teachings of a patriarchally-dominated world. In fact, this rawness may spark fear from the ego. However, we must learn to fight against the grain of our conditioning in every moment and question the choices we make every day.

Just look around you at the hustle-culture and non-stop capitalistic society. This is all in contrast to the feminine. The feminine aspect is all-knowing, receptive, and compassionate. She is not afraid of expressing her emotions. She is not afraid of change. And she honors these cycles as truth.

The divine masculine stands for action, creation, and sheer force. This energy is not the enemy of the feminine archetype but rather the divine complement. The goal is to learn to live and flow with both energies at the same time.

This balance will look different for everyone. There is not a one-size-fits-all method. I invite you to sit with an idea, an urge, or an inspiration and see how it manifests for you. The inner feelings you receive in return are the divine feminine at work. Intuition and feeling are the seats of the feminine. This inner-knowing is her home, and this is why she has come back.

We live in a world that glorifies taking action without foresight from intuition. We are seeing the effects of this now. Animals are dying out in droves. Forests, lake beds, and natural resources are disappearing before our very eyes. As a human race, we have more monetary inequality than ever before. We also have more depression and anxiety than ever before.

It’s clear that Gaia is suffering. And if Gaia suffers, we suffer too. But we don’t have to. We each have a role to play. We all have a purpose in this life. The solution is more evident than you might think. You just have to stop searching outside of yourself and turn within.

In my opinion, the next world revolution will not be wrought with guns and violence but be a renaissance of the heart and the Goddess alive inside of you.

And I have to say, it’s about time.

  1. Fantastic read! 💯 spot on!! It’s like you took the words out of my mouth siStar!! So true. As the Dali Lama once said the world will be changed by western women. Why? Because we have the freedom right now to stand up, we are not bound in the west to speak our thoughts and make a difference. As feminine leaders we must pull together and show our siStars how to do the same. Thank you for speaking not only your truth but THEE Truth. Goddess bless you. I’m part of your tribe. 🙏🥰❤️
